Tuesday, Jul 1, 2008 Jesus Picks E-Dog for Main Event
Chris "Jesus" Ferguson has revealed to PokerJunkie that he thinks Erick "E-Dog" Lindgren will win the Main Event.
- I got to go with Erick Lindgren. He has had an amazing series. He's had first in a big event and a third, and I think he's leading in the point's race. So I got to go with Erick Lindgren, Ferguson told PokerJunkie.
Jesus himself will put up a good fight, however:
- My goal is the win the Main Event, but the chances are very slim. They are very, very slim - 200 to 1 or worse. I have don't have any special strategies planned for the Main Event. You just got to sit down, see who you're playing against, see how they're playing and adjust to that.
Are you happy with the 2008 WSOP so far?
- Very happy. I came in third in the biggest they've ever had outside the Main Event. I'm very proud of that. I also had a very good second place in another event. I would have loved to get the bracelet, but I'm not disappointed with second. I mean, I was free-rolling after I got my third-place finish. I could go home satisfied with that, but then I came in second, so it has been a great series.
